Update of task #8406 (project administration):

Follow-up Comment #1:

I am reviewing your project -- sorry for the delay.
There are some inconsistencies:

* The preferred copyright notice for GPLv3 has changed slightly --
  please see or the file COPYING
  in your tarball.
* Please include a short README with a copyright notice in Resources
  for the images and the .gorm files.  See
  for details.  (BTW, some of the images are executable -- perhaps a
* In MplayerGSInfo.plist the copyright year is 2003; since this is
  what the users will see in the Info dialog, please include all years
  as appropriate, separated by commas.  See the above URL for details.

Would you be willing to correct these small problems and give us the
URL to an updated tarball?

One minor recommendation:  Since the project is under GPL, "All rights
reserved." seems out of place and confusing.  According to the FSF
licensing team this is not a problem, but some distros (e.g. Debian)
sometimes reject packages because of this.  It would be nice to remove
them while updating the copyright/license notices.


P.S.  Unrelated to the project registration, but I find it worth
mentioning.  Your package does not work on gNewSense 2.0 -- it builds
fine but NSException is thrown when loading the .gorms.  IIRC this is
because they were edited with a modern version of Gorm which depends
on GNUstep GUI 0.14.  You might want to include (in README, for
example) the minimal Base/GUI versions required; this would be very
helpful to your users.
